Imagine if this news hit the wires in 2004. I suspect the media would have been interested:
According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a nine-month investigation into presidential and congressional fundraising and has uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Bush and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecure accounts, and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election laws.
Now substitute the name “Obama” for “Bush,” and change the date to 2012. Will the media bury the story? Time will tell.
